It was a rockin' good time at the 88.3 WPPB-FM After Parade Party as 88.3 listeners joined WPPB's radio personalities
and special guest performers for a post parade tailgate party in Southampton Village Wednesday, July 4th.
Atop the WPPB parade float was acoustic rock artist Inda Eaton, and American Roots Music duo Edith Gawler and Bennett Konesni, who entertained parade goers with their renditions of "This Land Is Your Land," and other patriotic favorites as the parade convoy made its way through the village streets. WPPB on-air radio personalities, led by Eclectic Cafe host Bonnie Grice, invited parade goers to follow the parade convoy back to station headquarters for a concert picnic.
Richie Siegler and Escola de Samba Boom, a drumming circle of some 20 plus local percussionist, brought the crowd to their feet as they entered the WPPB courtyard sounding their hypnotic beat. Eaton, who is currently touring to support her new album, 'Go West,' which features East End headliners Nancy Atlas, Caroline Doctorow, Lee Lawler and GRAMMY award winning recording engineer, Cynthia Daniels, was joined by Scott Hopson, musician and host of the live weekly variety show - 230 Down on Wednesdays at 230 Elm.
Thanks go out to all the community supporters who donated refreshments, hot dogs, watermelon, ice cream, cookies and decorations, making our After Parade Party a rocking success.
